    I can't stop eating it! Thought I'd post and say I used AB's recipe (huge Good Eats fan) to make my first batch and it is sublime. If you're interested in making easy homemade jerky, here: Beef Jerky Recipe : Alton Brown : Food Network I didn't make my own liquid smoke and used store...

    After my successful first attempt at pipe making I was encouraged to try it in the actual medium - Briar. Here it is, my second homemade pipe. The Briar had a few little defects which may make this a candidate for rustication or sandblasting. For now it's polished. Specifications Overall...

    Ever since I smoked my first MM Cob about a month ago I have wanted to make my own pipe. I bought a chunk of sugar maple and went to work. I placed an order with PIMO for stems, dyes and wax but it was taking forever (3 weeks+) to arrive so I scavenged the bit from my MM Legend Cob. What do...

    We then stained the out part of the box for a darker look using a water based gel stain, this highlighted the grain of the wood. Very nice. I glued the magnet part of the humidification device on the inner side of the lid, seasoned the humidor for 3 days and - there you go - keeps 72-74 %...

    I smoke cigars for quite some time now and I wanted to buy another humidor to age a larger amount of sticks. Here humidors are quite expensive (I live in Italy) so I decided to work on a project with my best friend. What we needed is a nice medium size wooden box and some cedar for the inner...

    As most of you pipe smokers know, almost every pipe tobacco site and store has a house bulk or bargain blend which is a lot of the extras or odds and ends of tobacco that they throw together and sell at a very cheap price. Most times, it seems to be some pretty rough stuff and the very low price...

    As with most of us, I started off with a tupperdor. My increasing interest in the hobby quickly outgrew the plastic container. I shopped around for a humidor but after seeing some of the craftsmanship and prices, I decided to roll my own. The project started off 5 months ago in my previous...

    I was sitting tonight with my dog by my side on my front porch having some vanilla in my elcheapo cob pipe. I started thinking, "it be interesting to try and make one of these" Has anyone ever tried to make a cob pipe? I figured: Thanksgiving is right around the corner, so I could easily get...

    I started looking for a decent small pipe rack for my pipe(s). I saw them from $30 and up... I thought to myself "thats crazy! I can build that for less." And so I did. This is my first go at it and it turned out pretty good. Used no nails, holds 4 pipes, sturdy. I can/was going to use oak...

    I'm proud of this baby. Red Oak outer and Spanish Cedar lining. Holds about 75 sticks and weighs a ton so there's no chance of someone knocking it off the table. Keeps everything nice and fresh and it was fun to build (from my own plans).

    After seeing all the different ways folks were storing their beads, I just had to share my latest project. I bought a couple slabs of spanish cedar a few months back. Using my modest woodworking skills I cut a chunk down to about a 2x2x7 inch piece. I then routed out the guts from 3 sides...

    I had recently had a couple of cigars that were a little tough on the draw. I read the reviews for the Boom draw poker and was debating on pulling the trigger and then something hit me! I had the perfect tool right at my fingertips! I manage an auto repair shop and we had just replaced a...

    I had some corn on the cob for memorial day and thought, "I could probably make a pipe out of this". So I saved the cob and hollowed it out, then used a piece of long grass as the stem. It has a really small bowl (1/2 to 3/4 of a regular CC bowl, but way skinnier) but I loaded it up anyways. It...
